Thank you to Clarins for sponsoring today’s post!
As I get older, I swear I feel like time is flying by faster. I know this is a common thought process, but man oh man is it true. I turned 31 this year, and I don’t feel 31 at ALL. I still feel like my 16 year old self who was more concerned about what she was doing with her friends that night than things like bills. My husband and I had this conversation the other day as well…when did we become adults? Why is “adulting” so hard? But the reality is I’ve had 31 amazing years on this planet and I’m SURELY not getting any younger. I just wish time would slow down a little bit!
With every year that passes, I notice different things about my skin, body, and even hair. While I am fully aware I definitely don’t look 31, that number still rings in my ears every time I have to speak it or type it out. I notice the new gray hair (I still don’t have many, but I found one the other day and was like AHHHHH!), or the change in my skin texture, or some stretch marks on my hips from childbirth. It’s resulted in me reaching for the anti-aging products a little more (just being honest here, guys!). Many of you have asked about my skincare routine, but I recently added a product I’ve kept secret from you which I SWEAR is the result of the “pregnancy” glow you all have commented on! I’m VERY particular with what skincare products I share on here with you. I only share products I 100% believe in!
Clarins recently sent me over their Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate and guys….oh. my. gosh. It’s been incredible! I’m super particular with my skincare products, and was happy to know this serum was safe for pregnancy (for any of you pregnant mamas out there!). Clarins Double Serum is a cult-favorite and #1 seller, but they recently updated the formula with Tumeric-extract. The tumeric-extract is incredible for the skin and basically everything in the body! And I swear, the stuff WORKS.
Clarins Double Serum is good for ALL skin types, and it improves firmness and elasticity as well as dullness and texture. There’s also NO parabens in the ingredients. It’s also not greasy when applied (I’m really picky about that because I don’t want anything to negatively effect how my makeup applies to my face). I’ve been using it for about a month now and I apply it in the morning and at night. I swear it’s made all the difference in the appearance of my skin
As far as order of application, this is how I apply my skincare products: cleanser, eye cream, Clarins Double Serum, follow by my face oil. There are two dispense options, a large drop and a small drop. The small drop has been more than enough for me, plus it saves on product. I’ve been using it for about a month and I’ve barely made a dent into the bottle. My skin has been normal as far as oil goes, and my breakouts have been minimal this pregnancy. As I previously said, the Double Serum is great for ALL skin types, but I just wanted to give you guys a little insight into how my skin is currently!
If you’re looking for a great anti-aging product try, I highly recommend giving the Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate a shot! You can purchase it at Sephora RIGHT HERE (free shipping!). If you have any questions about the product, feel free to leave me a comment below! 🙂
